Private Parties

A unique venue with a nautical twist

With a fleet accommodating 8 to 100 guests, a ChesterBoat charter makes a unique venue for any special occasion. From engagement to hen party to wedding reception, christening to birthday party, and everything in between, we can help you plan a unique party that your guests are guaranteed to remember. Take a look at our gallery for some charter inspiration!

On sunny summer evenings the River Dee and Cheshire countryside makes a stunning backdrop for your cruise, and there’s no better place to be than sipping a cool drink on Bonkie or on the top deck of The Jackie. In the winter, the Lady Diana and Mark Twain are cosy and warm with two heated levels and atmospheric disco lights.

You can complete a Private Charter Enquiry if you have a date in mind and we’ll send over tailored availability and quotes, or just request an info pack if you’d like some general prices and information.
